I am a senior at Francis Parker high school, having previously worked for Young Chicago Authors as a student journalist and with Polyphony H.S. as a first reader. I have had a lot of experience with online journalism in the past few years with, and some of my work has been featured on WBEZ Public Radio. I have also published a full-length science fiction e-book a few years ago, which is currently available on iTunes. In my spare time, I usually enjoy like to read or play basketball.
